What is meditation

Section: Meditation - Category: Other meditation

In the field of metaphysics, meditation has been the preferred tool since the beginning of time. Contemplation over the principles of reality transcending those of any particular science, eventually led to higher levels of awareness. Subsequently, mystics created religions and agnostics created philosophies in their quest for answering the basic questions: what is reality and how do I relate to it?.

Advanced Yoga Practices

Section: Meditation - Category: Other meditation

An effective derivative of TM is Yogani’s Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP). The mantra used in AYP is “I AM”. Beyond the obvious connotation with the Judeo-Christian significance of the mantra, there is also a vibratory connection to the AUM in the Hindu religion. Simple in the beginning, AYP becomes more intricate as the meditator advances in the practice. Powerful and efficient, it is worth trying. Yogani is the modern guru of this method, even though he does not like the denomination, all the chapters of his book Advanced Yoga Practices - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living, end with “the guru is in you”. He also wrote this very motivational novel about a young person’s quest for spiritual growth: The Secrets of Wilder. Good read.

Benefits of meditation

Section: Meditation - Category: Other meditation

Meditation is the method of choice for one’s spiritual evolution but this is not the benefit discussed in this article. Rather the focus is on meditation immediate benefits for your mind and body. These benefits are easier to quantify by science.

Is this true? Keep on reading ...

Autobiography of a Yogi

Section: Meditation - Category: Other meditation

Autobiography of a Yogi   It’s a classic. Most people inclined to eastern religions consider it so.Yogananda is one of the most famous Hindu representatives in the West. He introduced to the Westerners kriya yoga, a form of meditation that has its roots in the many millennia of Eastern Indian wisdom. Like Maharishi, he brought into the Western Spirituality a different perspective. Also an alternative for many to the rigid dogmas of the more consecrated religions.This book is about Yogananda’s path to spiritual evolution. He shares his experiences and feelings starting with his early years to his passing. It is also a compelling insight into Indian culture, religion mysticism and spirituality. There is a perennial truth that springs out from Yogananda’s autobiography: spirituality, and the divine is personal experience. Some may emphasize the role of the organized religions, scriptures, gurus and priests, still, only the burning desire of going beyond the apparent truth can lead one to a higher purpose in life. Something to notice through out the book is also Yogananda’s desire to accommodate the other religions. Many quotes from other holy books, either the Christian Bible, the Islamic Koran or the Hebrew Tanakh. For example, talking about the essence of meditation, a focused and still mind, he quotes from the Bible “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10.
